What I Am Discovering At New Room 2018

When most attend a seminar, conference or retreat they usually say, "Well, this is what I learned."  Notice the grammatical tense of that word.  It's in the past tense.  I know my high school English teachers At Mrs. Weir and Mrs. Pettus would be shocked that I remembered anything from their lessons.  And I have [...]

Cleansers!

Well, time for my daily class assignment:  What did you learn yesterday?  As the day began I was looking forward to it.  But now?  I admit that it is a bit more difficult than I imagined.  Has that ever happened to you?  Something you thought you could do, easily do, but out of nowhere it [...]

Learning From The Tide

So far this has been a great Spiritual Summer Retreat.  Some may call it a vacation, but for me, it's been a time of refocusing on God in my life.  Some of the things that have happened to me this year have been, well, challenging.  Truthfully, I let some of those things get the best [...]

A Moving Journal-Day 6

Tomorrow the moving truck and crew arrive.  Well, no more trips to the curb.  This morning was pick-up day, and managed to get it all out there with 15 minutes to spare.  Timing is everything as they say.  Packed some more.  The Moving Supervisor, that's my wife, informed me that I needed to take some [...]

Heaven–You Can’t Get There From Here! Part 7 The Final Answer

Well, here we are at the end of this semester.  I pray and hope that you are able to see with clarity the fallacies of these 5 Plans.  I would be remiss and a failure to be a good professor if I did not give you the correct answer to the question:  How Do You [...]

My Apology: “Why does HE Eat With Tax Collectors And Sinners?” (Like me?)

(This post is for those I wounded last week.  I am truly sorry.)         15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with Him and His disciples, for there were many who followed Him. 16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw Him eating [...]

In The World Church Versus Of The World Church

Can you see the difference between "the church in the world" and "the world in the church"?  Of course you can, unless you've been blinded by the Wicked One.  When you try to operate your local church by the values and principles of this world, you will only be a petty and pathetic private club.  [...]

But What About…???

If you are not a United Methodist, or have not been following "The Great Controversy", or are simply a United Methodist who has had their head buried in the sand while hoping "The Great Controversy" will just go away, these words from my heart and mind will probably not mean much to you and you [...]

Blah, Blah, Whiners Have You Anything Else?

I am...started to say "surprised" but really I'm not because I saw it coming from a mile away.  I am...started to say "amazed" but that's not the word because there's nothing profound or significant in it.  I am...started to say "speechless" but there's so much I could say.  I am...started to say "fed-up" because I [...]

Do You Serve Before God’s Altar?

OK, since God calls us to be a Kingdom of Priests (1 Peter 2:9) I ask you:  Whose altar is it?  Priests in the Old Testament served before the Altar of God, meaning God owned that altar.  If the altar is yours then the Fire of Revival will never fall on it.  The fire from [...]

A New Definition Of Hate

OK, I admit it.  Sometimes I don't keep up with all the current events.  The past 7 days, though, I have a good, a very good excuse.  But then, don't we all?  Well, I feel like mine has some merit.  Last Wednesday I had a heart ablation from which I am recovering very well.  Then [...]
